Reuters – Two New York City apartment buildings collapsed on Wednesday in an explosion apparently caused by a gas leak, killing at least six people and injuring more than 40, with several more victims feared trapped in the rubble, officials said.The blast, which scattered debris across nearby rooftops, brought down the adjoining five-story buildings, with a total of 15 apartments, at about 9:30 a.m. 1330 GMT on a largely residential Upper Manhattan block at East 116th Street and Park Avenue.
